After lunch and a couple good brews at Shallo's, my wife and I made a beeline for this liquor store for the first time and was blown away by the selection. I am used to shopping at the Party Source or PartyTown in Northern Kentucky and was pleasantly surprised to find GREAT beer in Indy.
Selection was second to none, prices were about average and the help in the store was fantastic. I now have ANOTHER great reason to head to Indy for GREAT beer! If you are anywhere near the southside, make sure you stop in and check it out! And the owner told me they are thinking about expanding the selection, which is fine to me.
Made another stop into the Parti-Pak last weekend and was a bit surprised and dissappointed to find the prices had jumped dramatically. Also, the beer seemed to be completely scattered throughout the store. Many, or maybe even most, were not priced or labeled and I had to take two bombers to the cashier just to see what the prices were. Hopefully I caught them on a bad day, but I didn't leave with my usual haul.

Thanks to the best craft beer store in Indianapolis. Bob was able to get me my # 1 want and another amazing brew as well. I wish I was much closer to this place. Im on the north side of indy and Party pak is on the south. Visit this place if your in Indy!

A: A regular liquor store, nothing fancy about the atmosphere. Spacing is a little tight to manueveur through.
Q: Stock is rotated regularly. Everyting I have bought from this location is of excellent quality.
S: Very friendly staff at opening, which is the only time I go. The owner and his wife are very friendly and personable, the owner and his sons are knowledgable and pretty well informed as to what is coming in to distribution.
S: Selection if AMAZING! Widest selection in town. They usually have most of the smaller release stuff. The selection of foreign beers is staggering. Coolers line 1/4 of the store in addition to room-temp product on the shelves. Very nice liquor and nice wine selection.
F: This location does not serve food, but munchies are available for purchase.
V: Price is a bit more than other locations, but this is a family business, the owner is a cool guy, and they have awesome selection, so I don't mind. Their prices are still very fair. I shop at this location once a week and will continue to do so.

The atmosphere is essentially that you are walking into a beer hoarder's shed. Organization is lacking and there is nothing fancy about the place, but who cares?! We're looking for some good brew. On the whole quality is pretty good. My only criticism is that their inventory is so large that some of their beers have become expired and they have failed to replace them. The staff seems to be generally knowledgeable and they were willing to start a FCBS list for me over 2 months before the release date. The selection is the most diverse that I have encountered in the area. Huge selection of American offerings with many specialty and a few rare releases. There is a sizable foreign stock as well which I have yet to delve into... If want brews you can't find anywhere else in Indiana, go here, but you may have to 'dig' to find the gems.

Probably my most frequented bottle shop in the Indy area, and definitely the widest selection I've seen anywhere near here. Always a huge range of choices and they get their hands on all the releases you'd expect them to in the area. Service is variable. Most of the time, they'll have at least one knowledgeable beer person working, but there have been times when that wasn't the case. The only reason the atmosphere lacks a bit is because it's in a bit of a shady area of town, so you can imagine there's a wide variety of visitors with varying levels of caring about the quality of the beer (or whether its beer at all) that they're buying. Overall, I love this place if nothing else than for its selection and being able to count on them to hold a bottle of the next special release for you. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

Today was my first trip to Parti-Pak and I was very impressed. While the store is cramped with narrow isles because it's so full of beer... the store is crammed full of beer! They have an incredibly wide variety of beer from all over the world that borders on overwhelming. It's one of those stores where I'll need to set a dollar limit before I enter because I could easily get carried away. The staff continually offers their assistance and the prices are fair.
One thing that I found odd was a stash of beer behind the counter that is basically just for display / lusting after.
Overall, I was impressed and I will definitely return.

Widest variety of beer in Indiana. Not the highest quality, but they say "yes" to every beer the distributors offer.
I get the feeling that the owner orders the beer, loves beer and is never there. His Daughter and her son work the counter. Both are nice. The rest of the employees are slightly helpful.
This place is next door to a check cashing place.
Slightly whiskey Tango, but they're got everything.
GOOD LUCK finding a price tag on anything. Just get a cart, fill it up and take it to the counter and say, "give the price for each one of these please."
Thats what I have to do. They expect it.

I read a review of this store on BA and today was able to get over there. It is about a half hour drive from my house so it is a little bit of a trip. I was amazed by the selection. I Crooked Tree DIPS, New Holland -The Poet, Avery - The Beast, and Stone Russian Imperial Stout.
I only shopped the American craft beers. The selection was impressive. The foreign beers were very strong and well represented.
The organization of the store is a little confusing. The clerk understood my questions and made a couple of good suggestions.
I will definately go back to this store.

I visited Parti-Pak on my day off on my 2nd stop of 5 of Indy's best bottle shops, and was not let down. The outside of the store looks like a ghetto packaged liquor shop, complete w/ check cashing/payday loan shop next door. A sign on the outside caught my eye, which said something to the effect of, "Largest specialty beer selection. If it's available in the state, you'll find it here.". "Allright, it's on," I thought as I walked through the doors.
The store has a pretty packed feel to it. Lots of shelves filled w/ LOTS of beer! Left side of the store is wines/spirits, middle shelves and back coolers are domestic macros & FMB's. The right side is beer heaven. The selection at Parti-Pak appeared to be even slightly better than Kahn's on Keystone. Right perimeter of the store is cold bottle storage. Fantastic selection of brews in the coolers. Running perpendicular to the right (north) wall are 5 or 6 full double aisles of craft 6 packs & bombers, and import 6 packs and single bottles. Some items are priced in the same ballpark as other stores in town. Other items are slightly cheaper. A friendly store clerk in his 20s was quick to ask if I needed help, and was able to tell me whether they had some specific brews I was looking for, and when others might be coming in.
Again, I was truly impressed w/ the selection, and the friendliness of the staff. The store is a good 30-45 min. drive for me, but I'll most definitely be back!
